“Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

He was great at sharing the history of Savannah and keeping everyone in the tour engaged. We were in a small group so it was great to be able to ask questions. He took us to all the places that we were wanting to see. Along the tour he also pointed out good restaurants and made suggestions of other things to visit while in Savannah. He was humerous and charming and by far created a great morning for us.

“Storytelling at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Do you like history? Do you like humor? Then your first "to do" when coming to Savannah is to book a tour with Savannah Dan. A master storyteller, his knowledge of the town is vast and you can tell he loves - maybe even more than Leopold's chocolate shakes, his city. The two hours are well spent, moving about at a relaxed pace while Savannah Dan relates the history of Savannah, its legends and lore, touching upon a wide variety of subjects from Oglethorpe to "trout spouts." And bring the kids - I noted that Dan interacted with his group at all age levels. If I return to Savannah with a group of friends, I would strongly suggest we arrange a private tour with Savannah Dan!

“What a way to start!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Savannah Dan is very entertaing and knowledgeable. You will get lots of interesting local information about the squares and the buildings. He also invites interaction, by the end of the tour we all were talking to him and other members of the tour. Every thing he suggested to us, we did and was very enjoyable. Before he made any suggestions, he always asked you some questions to find out what you were looking for...not everyone got the same suggestions...except for Leopold's...Savannah Dan loves his Chocolate Milk Shakes!

“A must do in Savannah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Savannah Dan was everything I expected a more. This is my second time in Savannah and the first time my boyfriend and I went on a "haunted" ghost tour which was awful. Basically, I was reluctant to go on yet another walking tour but this is simply not to be missed. Savannah Dan is engaging, funny, and his knowledge about savannah is amazing. He answers any questions you have without a lick of confusion. So so so good!! Very worth it!
